USC is expected to bring in impressive basketball class despite program's link to FBI investigation

The on-again, off-again relationship between USC and J'Raan Brooks is on-again ahead of national signing day.

After several commitment changes, Brooks is expected to sign with the Trojans on Wednesday, rounding out an impressive recruiting class for Andy Enfield despite the program's link to the FBI's investigation into college basketball bribery and corruption.

"Committed," Brooks wrote on Twitter last month, accompanied by a photo of himself wearing a USC uniform. This week, Brooks posed for a photo holding a USC certificate of admission that was posted to social media.

Shooting guard Kevin Porter from Rainier Beach High in Seattle and point guard Elijah Weaver from Rockledge High in Florida signed letters of intent during the early signing period in November, though USC withheld an official announcement.

"These are three players that can help them immediately," Evan Daniels, a national recruiting analyst for 247sports.com, said Tuesday. "With everything that that program has been through, for Andy Enfield to kind of withstand it and get a really good recruiting class with three top-100 players is a big deal."

The addition of Brooks, a 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward from Garfield High in Seattle, will give USC the third-ranked recruiting class in the Pac-12 Conference behind Oregon and UCLA, according to 247Sports.com composite rankings.
